Summer PD experiment #2: Digitalizing Notepads to Evernote

Here is the next batch of things I typed into Evernote this morning. Each morning I am tackling one notepad, folder, or stack of papers. I am not recording everything just the ones that I think are useful for a later date.

Here is a link to previous blog posts about my Summer PD

Today I tackled the black folder. This has some awesome project ideas that I need to figure out the best way to get into Evernote, but scattered in the folder were many random pages of notes from readings of books I would assume. Too bad there was not titles recorded.

Always remain open and experimentative, always ready to walk a path you have never walked before. Who knows? Even if it proves useless it will be an experiment.

A problem can be dropped so easily if you understand that it is you holding the problem, not the problem holding you.

Whatever you try to deny becomes very attractive.

Who are we without labels?

A good thing and not so good as nothing.

Try to experience oneness.

No matter how extreme a situation is it will change. It cannot continue forever. Fire cools. Water seeks its own level.

Without imbalance there would be no movement in life.

In midst of extreme situations, wise stay patient.

The closer something comes to completion the harder and more definite it becomes. The ends comes from the shaping.

Actions in life are reduced to two factors: Positioning and Timing
We can be in the right place at the right time and still miss the moment
Position is useless without awareness

All things happen together

Here is to the pens that make your handwriting look amazing.

Never test the depth of water with both feet.

Small steps to make incremental improvement
The key is no setbacks

Take a few minutes each day in silence to visualize, pray, give thanks, reflect.

Maintain a sense of self control

Friendship is made to have mutual benefits

World is an echoing place – we throw anger, anger comes back.

Doubt is a barrier

A line is a dot that took a walk – Paul Klee

Digitalizing Notepads to Evernote – White Notepad Part 1

Part of my summer PD is to declutter my life. I have some experiments already underway with sleep and alarm clocks.

The next step is to declutter all my notepads, notes, folders, and thousands of pieces of paper with my notes scribbled all over them.

I will be archiving them in Evernote(the good ones anyways) and sharing them here.

Get ready for the randomness. If you see something good let me know.

You can push your level of hustle up a notch for games, but you won’t push your performance level up a notch unless you learn to hustle in practice.

excuses are misplaced energy, focus, and time
